Realign Your Focus to Stay on Course

In the Bible, an angel declared the coming birth of Samson who was to become a man of great destiny (Judges 13). God gifted him with supernatural strength to deliver his people from the hands of the Philistines, but Samson didn't take responsibility for what he had been given. He let his guard down, set his eyes on the wrong thing, began to rebel against what he knew was right, and was weakened in his morals. He began to hang around the wrong people and got into the wrong living situation. Just as the Bible states, "Bad company corrupts good character" (1 Corinthians 15:33), so it was with Samson. He did not guard what he was doing or saying, and he ended up in the hands of his enemies, blind and chained.

Just think of what Samson could have become if he would have checked his heart and said, "God, help me to say no to these temptations and distractions that are taking me from what You want me to be and do." If he would have just realigned his focus, asked for forgiveness, and repented of his sins. He had the power to say, "Okay, I'm done with that lifestyle, and I'm breaking away from the friends I've been hanging on to. God, help me be strong."

Just as it does for us, every single day held a new beginning for Samson. God's mercies are new every morning. We're all going to make mistakes and do things we shouldn't, but when we fall down, we don't have to stay down. We can get back up because of the mercy and grace of Almighty God. We can make the decision that we are going to do what Samson did not do: "let us lay aside every weight, and the sin which so easily ensnares us" (Hebrews 12:1). We can say, "I will change what I'm doing. I can change this habit. I don't have to go with the crowd. I am taking responsibility for what I say and do."

If you want to stay on the best path for your life, when you get up every day, ask yourself, "Am I honoring God in the decisions that I'm making? Am I setting right priorities every single day?" These will realign and refocus you. You have to evaluate your life and be willing to change. You will never get away from temptations and distractions, but with God's help, you can overcome them!
